Potato Flake Chicken Tenders Recipe
1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying
1 cup milk
1 (7.6 oz) pkg. instant garlic flavor potatoes or 1 cup potato flakes with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 lbs. chicken tenders

Red Pepper, cut into strips
Parmesan cheese, shredded
Drop any amount of first three vegetables you want into boiling water for 2 minutes or until they are bright in color and still crisp. Do not overcook them. Drain immediately and rinse in cold water. Drain well. Add pepper strips, cover and chill. Before serving toss with dressing and cheese.
You can serve this pie with just whipped cream or you could leave out the nuts and top with lemon, blueberry, cherry or any other pie filling.
